Poland gets a visist from Biden and assurances on the 'new' missile shield…..

Poland, one of  the United States newest and strongest allies got a recent visit from Vice President Joe Biden…..Biden brought a gift along with him (he’s going to the Czech’s next)…..the US basing of the ‘new’ scaled down missile shield that will consist of shorter ranged variant of the current Aegis ship based system…….please note…there is no current land based system…Raytheon, the unit’s manufacture, will be getting a green light to move the system off ships to land…..it seems that the Israeli’s will get the system first……

Of course these visit’s (after the Russian’s were placated with the original announcements with the flourishes) are VERY important,  in that the both countries are always going to be looking over their shoulder’s at the big guy to the east…..Russia….and they are ever mindful of the Georgian ‘incursion’….Any deployment of land based systems will probably come with US Army troops, who will be the owners and operators of the equipment….and their insurance value to the Poles and Czech’s, against the Russian…..

Notice people….. That everyone specking for the United States suddenly forgot the how to use the word ‘shield’?

……nuff said………
